The Cypress Tree here stands away from all the others. It allows the birds to fly in straight and slow over the water.

The images below are from the main nesting area. When the Egrets return to the nests here they need to take different paths, depending on the other birds.

These are the small things I would never have noticed not that long ago. If I pay attention to ‘how’ they fly my success rate is much better.
